Functions more as a diversion than a fully satisfying motion picture, although, for something streaming on Netflix, a “diversion” is usually good enough.

As far as it goes, the first film is an enjoyable space opera but, as a stand-alone, it doesn’t work.

At times it feels a little amateurish, especially in terms of its comedy, but there’s also a deep-rooted sense of sincerity.

Although there are individual moments that snap, crackle, and pop, the production as a whole is bloated and at times even a little tedious.

With "mother!", director Darren Aronofsky seems determined to baffle, infuriate, and divide his audience.

"Rebel in the Rye" falls into the trap that ensnares many a bio-pic: trying to present too broad a chronology in too limited a time.

A generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural.
